    Awesome! But I think it'd be better for sales if they released it when the life of the current handhelds (PSP, DS) wears out and it's time for the next generation to kick in

    I wouldn't hold your breath on this ... they have been saying this for a couple of years now since the release date of the original DS PHAT!

    Isn't that what i said above!? [​IMG]

    Anyhow no doubt they will try bring one out anyway to try get a chunk of money in the download content that PSP and now DSi handhelds are charging people for already for stuff like full/retro on the move game downloads!

    Actually, the rumor is about the semi-confirmed Zune HD, not this mock-up. We'll see. If it will be touch-screen only - forget it, I have that on my iPod touch and it sucks. If we get some buttons and Xbox Live ... that's a whole new story.

    This seems pretty sweet, it's always good to have a variety of gaming consoles and games out there. When it says "Live from anywhere" do they mean that they might be getting some sort of phone network or mobile broadband or something like it which works with an Xbox Live subscription? If so that would be pretty cool waiting at a trainstation or something playing online.
